Kieran Trippier focused on landing Premier League return this summer after impressing for England at Euro 2020… but Atletico Madrid will not let him go without a fight and are ready to demand £30m (despite his deal expiring at the end of this season!)
- Kieran Trippier was one of the stars for England this summer during Euro 2020
- The Atletico Madrid right back has impressed since he made the move to Spain
- Sportsmail understands Trippier, who grew up in Bury, wants a return to England
- Man United are admirers but saw their efforts to land him rebuffed this summer
Kieran Trippier is prioritising a return to the Premier League next season following his involvement in England’s run to the Euro 2020 final.
The Atletico Madrid full-back played a key role in England’s runners up finish at the tournament, making five appearance including three starts – one of which came in the final defeat to Italy.
Trippier will now turn his attentions to resolving his club future amid major interest from Manchester United.

Sportsmail understands it is the 30-year-old’s preference to return to England following two seasons in the Spanish capital under Diego Simeone.
Trippier only has a season left to run on his deal with Atletico, not two as has been previously suggested.
There are options to extend hid contract at The Wanda Metropolitano, but as it stands his deal expires at the end of the forthcoming season.
United have already seen their attempts to sign Trippier rebuffed by Atletico earlier this summer – but the Old Trafford club remain interested in landing the defender ahead of the new campaign.

His impressive displays for England during the Euros have also attracted interest from at least two Premier League clubs, but the prospect of joining United is an obvious attraction for Trippier, who was born in neighbouring Bury.
Trippier has been a mainstay of Atletico’s team since his arrival from Tottenham ahead of the 2019-20 season.
But while he has impressed in Spain, the right back is setting his sights on a return to the English game.
It appears, however, that Atletico will not let him leave without a fight and value Trippier at around the £30million mark.
